A racing car that never spawned a production version, the R.S. 01 was a powered by a modern classic, the twin-turbo V6 from the Nissan GT-R. In this guise it produced 550 hp, which, along with the 1145 kg weight, makes it faster than a GT3 car. The R.S. 01 had a one-make racing series for two years, which saw former F1 drivers like Christian Klien and Robert Kubica behind the wheel. Its Dallara carbon fiber monocoque could have raced in LMP1 in 2014, and the car produces 1200 kg of downforce at 300 km/h. A mid-engined production supercar form Renault was always unlikely to happen, but the R.S. 01 is probably the closest it will ever get.

Didn’t they eventually modify the car to fit GT3 classification?

They did, and it won a couple of races, most prominently in the 2016 International GT Championship, but that version was slower, so less interesting. Detuned to 500 PS, about 100 kg of weight added and different chassis I think.

While true that it may be less interesting, I think its cool that they made it more relevant than a one make series though

Need this. They should make a new carpack featuring only track cars.

This will be a very fun car to race in the GT class.

You see, it’s 2016. Renault don’t use the RS branding anymore so it could be a hassle to obtain a licence.

We still have the R.S. cars like the Megane and Clio V6 in Motorsport.

I hope they add this in the GT3 Spec so that we can race it in ForzaGT

Argh, this is the Renault RS01 we need, not the 1977 RS01. Since when did a Renault RS01 exist in 1977? Wrong subject.
